Did You Know?


Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey are the only actors from the 5 main cast members to sit out an episode of season 7- the sixth episode. The other three (Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington) appear in all 7 episodes of the season. See more »


Since it has become a common knowledge that White Walkers can be destroyed by either fire, dragonglass or Valyrian steel, Gendry should have armed himself with any of those like his companions (Jon - Valyrian steel sword; Jorah - dragonglass dagger; Beric and Thoros - flaming swords). Instead he is armed with a warhammer, which is useless against White Walkers. See more »

Jon Snow: I wish I could take it back. I wish we'd never gone.
Daenerys Targaryen: I don't. If we hadn't gone, I wouldn't have seen. You have to see it to know. Now I know. The dragons are my children. They're the only children I'll ever have. Don't you understand? We are going to destroy the Night King and his army. And we'll do it together. You have my word.

They chose the wrong director for this episode
22 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Why they didn't choose the same director that did Hardhome, Battle of the bastards and winds of winter is beyond me. It's crazy that he isn't even directing an episode this season when he has always delivered and made the the best episodes on the whole show. This episode had his name all over it as it portrayed the white walkers in a cool, harsh ad brutal way in hard home but this director Alan taylor who directed this episode apart from the spear show lost that same feel.

other than the timing and bad story writing he also made so many directing errors. it was almost like this director who directed such flop as terminator genysis tried giving this game of thrones episodes the same sort of Hollywood feel by overloading the episode with special effects, when Game of thrones has always shown us you don't need crazy special effects and action to make a good episode. It was always about the amazing depth of detail and dialogue that makes this show amazing which this episode lacked. The best part of this episode was the interaction between the characters beyond the wall other then that, it was very disappointing. Do not let this director touch another got episode, please!
